AMAG signs long-term supply contract with Boeing

January 22, 2014

AMAG material for all Boeing aircraft types

Austrian AMAG announced in January 2014 that it has signed a major multi-year contract valued in the triple-digit million US dollar range with Boeing Commercial Airplanes for the supply of aluminum plate and sheet. Landing this order means an expansion of the long-standing cooperation with Boeing with an increase in the quantities to be delivered. The material produced by the aluminum specialist will be used in all current Boeing aircraft types. The contract adds high-strength sheet and strip to the product range to be delivered to Boeing. Aluminum is a material offering properties such as corrosion resistance and high strength at low weight: advantages which are in demand in the aircraft industry. In aircraft, aluminum is primarily used for structural components of the fuselage and wings.

AMAG is a leading Austrian premium supplier of high-quality aluminum cast and flat rolled products for various industries such as the aircraft, automotive, sports equipment, lighting, mechanical engineering, construction and packaging industries. The Canadian smelter Alouette, in which AMAG holds a 20% interest, produces high-quality primary aluminum while safeguarding an exemplary eco-balance. With 1,490 employees, the company achieved sales of EUR 820 in the 2012 fiscal year.
